OOTD: Fall in California

fall outfit

It’s cold, it’s hot, it’s raining, and now it’s sunny. That’s just how it is in Cali hence the sweater, shorts and boots combo. On the one hand I like the amount of warm sunshine but it’d be nice to have real seasons. Lol. Maybe things will cool down by Thanksgiving. *Fingers Crossed*

OOTD: Factory Worker

casual outfitMy hotel room was hit at 2a.m. this morning. In the downpour of bullets I was only to grab one of my bags before escaping through the fire escape. Luckily, I made it out alive but I’ve got very few weapons and ammunition. Not to mention that there are only a few things in my bag to build a disguise with.

I’m going to enter the factory at midday while everyone is at lunch. This is the only time the guards place their guns back in their holsters. They’re plump men who like to use both hands to devour their meals.

OOTD: Shirt Dress

OOTDCasualI had envisioned wearing this shirt dress with knee high sweater socks, boots, and a scarf but since it warmed up this weekend I had to switch things up a bit. I know everyone is saying this but I too am ready for Fall! I want to wear sweaters and boots and all things warm and cozy!

I hope you had a lovely weekend! Let me know if you need outfit ideas for anything :)

Joshua Tree National Park

Visiting new places, trying new things, and taking my boyfriend with me is pretty much what I consider a perfect weekend. Throw fashion into the mix and I might explode from happiness.

We went on a little adventure to Joshua Tree and although we didn’t plan on climbing over giant boulders….we couldn’t help ourselves. Adventure is in our blood. I hope to keep traveling and exploring, even if it’s just on a local level while we save up for bigger things. I want to see it all :)

Have you visited Joshua Tree? Do the outdoors interest you? What about travel….where would you go first if you could go anywhere in the world?



Valentine’s Week!

Happy Couple




DualWalletsOnly a few days left until Valentine’s day! And I have a fun handmade gift idea to share with you :) My friend Bree makes cute duct tape wallets that you can have customized. I love that they’re a unique gift and that she makes them herself. There’s something truly endearing about anything homemade. I think it’s because you know that if someone is using their free time to work on a project than there’s love and passion behind it.

You can check out Bree’s Facebook HERE and tomorrow I’ll be featuring her adorable heart clutch wallet!

Since my boyfriend was nice enough to join me for the photos, we ended up shooting with his cousin Christina. She’s a talented photographer and I really hope we can work with her again soon!

Let me know what you guys think about these awesome duct tape wallets. How would you have yours customized?!



Leopard Skirt Romance

leopardhighlow leopardOutfit LeopardSkirtHi :) So I’m keeping these date night outfit posts pretty simple. But I have some very creative posts coming up in the next few weeks (so excited!) and I think that’ll create a nice balance.

This skirt is from… you guessed it…Forever 21. Lol. I wish there were more options within that price range. On the bright side, there’s a huge F21 by my house with a pretty big selection of stuff.

My shoes are sooo old but surprisingly comfy. They’re a $20 Ross find. And last but not least, my top is made by the company I work for Joie :)

I hope your week is off to a great start!



Pink Shoes and a Silly Face


Nike Flex Shoes

Silly FaceAwesome Nike Flex Shoes

We made it to Wednesday! Let the weekend countdown commence! So I wanted to focus in on my shoes really quickly because they make me super happy Lol. I beat my last pair up for a good two years and finally needed to get something more supportive for running. These hot pink Nike Flex shoes feel amazing, they’re very flexible. Plus they’re on sale right now!

On another note, I think it’s important to remember that life is about having fun. So no matter what you’re doing, enjoy it, have fun and try to not take yourself too seriously (This is one of my new year’s resolutions). And so in keeping with my resolution… I also wanted to share my mismatched socks & silly face with you. Happy Wednesday :)

Lots of love,

Style Remix: Pink Dress




My sweater was a $10 Kohl’s clearance find and my Forever 21 dress was only $15 dollars! First off, $15 is a steal for a dress. And the fact that it can double as a sheer and flirty maxi well…that’s pretty awesome in my book.

I hope these remixes help you get the most out of your wardrobe. Is there a dress in your closet that you can try this with?
